You wouldn't live there, nor obviously would you fit in; have you been there at all? I lived there, at 1 Alternative Way, communally, for 5 years. What constitutes "feral tourists" and "petty criminals"? You'll find these in Wentworth Falls if you're thinking of car vandals and pot smokers. Goodness, by imagination alone, I doubt very much the ferals are restricted, or concentrated to Nimbin; probably could be found anywhere in Australia.
